On our website are plugins from the video portal Vimeo of Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. If you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, then your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Vimeo.

This information is transmitted directly from your browser to a Vimeo server in the USA and stored there. When you log into Vimeo, Vimeo can directly link your visit to our website to your Vimeo account.

These interests are to be regarded as justified within the definitions of the aforementioned provision.
The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.
For the purpose of customizing and continually optimizing our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, ( https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereafter "Google").

This information may also be transferred to third parties when required by law or if third parties process this data in the order. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with any other data provided by Google. The IP addresses are made anonymous, so that any direct correlation with your IP address is not possible (IP masking).
You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we point out that in this case not all features of our website may be fully utilized.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
To statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website, we also use Google conversion tracking. In doing so, Google Adwords will set a cookie (see paragraph 5) on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google ad.
These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can not be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers can see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page using a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
